it was amazing
Read in January, 2003

I cannot explain why I loved this book so much except to say that I connected with it on some deep, perhaps subconcious level. This is the only book I've ever read that made me cry, really cry rather than shed a few tears. In fact I bawled nonstop for nearly half an hour towards the end. I confess I remember little about the plot, but I can recommend this book for the beautiful, vivid, unusual, honest writing style. Also the book alternatives between the narratives of each brother, and one comes away feeling deeply for each brother. Finally, this book might appeal to anyone who can relate to disfunctional family dynamics, spiritual questioning, and even Seventh-day Adventism.

I lent this book to a friend shortly after reading it and still regret that it was never returned!
